Good point Jim, many people panic when they hear news like that and they have a stock with a company thats going down. Like you said most if not all mutual funds are actively managed and chances are, the particlular stock is not significantly represented on the portfolio. The only downside with actively managed mutual funds in a bad martket is the double impact on the losses due to the fees charged by fund managers which makes it hard to regain what you have lost over time. None the less, long term investors dont need to worry because we know that the market will recover when the cycle starts going up, atleast historically speaking.
